World Cup 2019: Marquee batsman and bowler from the 'Big 5' teams
Batsman – Aaron Finch
Finch is Australia's best batsman at the moment and their safest bet at the top of the order. The right-hander is a reliable and dangerous opener. He is a versatile player who can bat in the middle-order as well, thus giving the line-up a much-needed flexibility.
Finch has a safe pair of hands on the field as well.
There is a possibility of him taking up the limited overs captaincy for the defending champions. Finch has a calm personality and Australia won't mind him taking up the leadership mantle going into the tournament.
Bowler – Mitchell Starc
The most reliable bowler in the Australian team and the quickest going around, Starc is a proven match-winner. The left-arm pacer has the ability to generate reverse swing with the old ball and can swing the new ball in both directions.
Starc can prove to be a pinch hitter towards the end and is one of Australia's most important players for the upcoming World Cup.
